IACTE is a professional organization of colleges and universities with undergraduate and/or graduate programs to prepare professional educators and is a state organization of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE). It is made up of university administrators and faculty, and actively seeks input from a variety of constituent groups.
Association membership is at the institutional level. Colleges and Universities which show progress toward state-level program approval may qualify to be a Candidate Member in accord with the IACTE Constitution.
IACTE serves its members in three major areas:
Advocates for public policy - the association works in close collaboration with the Indiana Professional Standards Board and the Indiana Department of Education and has served as a major player in shaping policy within the state.
Professional Initiatives - in association with AACTE, the state association works to expand the knowledge base about teaching and teacher education through meetings and technology.
Peer support - the association encourages and supports members in accomplishing the agenda of the educational community. It holds 4-5 meetings annually, supports the Outstanding Future Educator Award and the Outstanding Teacher Educator Award.
